Re: drum overheads

I think certain hi-hats are better for certain genres. I was using a Zildjian 13" A custom hi-hat for rock music. I was constantly hitting it open for that loose trashy hi-hat sound. This hi-hat...

Re: How distance from vocal mic affects sound

Well the compression came out perfect on the track...I mean it could probably maybe use just a tiny bit more...so I'm not worried about that. As I said, it's sometimes a little hard to see how much...
